    24 @---++ Formatting Tokens
       
    25 
       
    26 TWiki defines some standard special tokens that can be used to replace characters in some parameters - notably those to FormattedSearch and IfStatements - to defer evaluation of the parameter until later. These special tokens are often called "escapes", because they allow the character to "escape" from its normal meaning. 
       
    27 %STARTINCLUDE%| =$n= or =$n()= | New line. Use =$n()= if followed by alphanumeric character, e.g. write =Foo$n()Bar= instead of =Foo$nBar= |
       
    28 | =$nop= or =$nop()= | Is a "no operation". This variable gets removed; useful for nested search |
       
    29 | =$quot= | Double quote (="=) (\" also works) |
       
    30 | =$percnt= | Percent sign (=%=) |
       
    31 | =$dollar= | Dollar sign (=$=) |
       
    32 %STOPINCLUDE%
       
    33 If you ever find yourself needing to escape an escape, you can use =$dollar= to escape the leading dollar, thus: =$dollarpercnt=.@
